Handprinted on handmade 100% recycled cotton rag paper.
This artwork was inspired by anthropomorphism, the evolution of communication and linguistic power, convergent evolution in the animal kingdom and mimicry.
Convergent Camouflage (Detailed) was created by photographing a hand-cut collage of nude portraiture, illustrations of birds and topography of the world. The digital negative was then contact printed onto hand shaped circular paper that had been hand-brushed with chemicals, before drying in a dark room. Once exposed to light, the piece was washed to develop a cyan blue colour, pressed dry and then hand finished with 24ct gold leaf.
